  • Penny Boechler says:

    I remember fondly spending time with the Schille clan as a small child. Always a loving, warm and welcoming family. I am so very sorry for the loss of your brother Wade.

  • Larry Uzelman says:

    I got to know my cousin Wade after we moved to Kelowna several years ago. We had quite a number of visits which were great conversations packed with Wade’s unique brand of entertainment and full of many of Wade’s special sayings. He was always brimming with friendship and energy,
    He frequently spoke lovingly of his mother & father, many brothers & sisters and the Schille & Uzelman families. Wade was a special character who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

  • Roy Uzelman says:

    From my first meeting with Wade 10 years ago I found him warm and enthusiastic whether discussing business or family related matters. He was always on point and shared his knowledge freely. A true friend whose inspiration and spirit endure. My condolences to Wades siblings and family members.

  • Wilma Fenrich says:

    My condolences to the Schille family. Wade was such a friendly guy, always reminding John and I that we were his godparents. I’m certain you will all miss him.

    Love to all,
    Wilma Fenrich

  • Susan Collette (Uzelman) says:

    I remember Wade as one of the little boys…….one of four. I knew him then and it seems he continued on to to be a kind, caring person that I knew as a young girl then as a teenager when I would visit my country cousins. Condolences to the Schille family. 💕

  • Monica Brophy (Bray) says:
